Maciej Ceglowski is the founder of Pinboard.in, an "anti-social" bookmarking site. As the social web evolves, some trends mature past the initial commodified service value to become strong cottage industries. A for-pay service inspired by the original del.icio.us, Pinboard.in takes a holistic approach to personal data tracking. The service integrates smoothly with the contemporary web of indie apps, and excels at truly frictionless clickstream cacheing.

Ken Segall Keeps it Simple: Ken shares how win your room with simplicity.
Bio From KenSegall.com:
My story is a simple one. I’m a writer who worked at ad agencies with high standards, then met a client with absurdly high standards: Steve Jobs. From ‘Think Different’ to iMac and beyond, I found that Steve’s love of simplicity was at the core of Apple’s every success…
Kelly: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work closely with Steve Jobs or name a product so brilliantly that it’s etched forever in the pages of history. Well I was, and that’s why I had to bring my dear friend Ken Segall on WTR radio.
Ken Segall worked closely with Steve Jobs at Apple. Ken is that guy we can thank for coming up with the name iMac, and the rest my friends is naming history. That cute little “i” became the foundation for naming all the other Apple products that followed.
We also chat about marketing ideas, and Ken says just “be yourself” I love it! How many times in a day do we worry and agonize about how we’re perceived, but if we just get out of our own way, then magic starts to happen!
Ken talks to moi at KoPoint, about his behind closed meetings with Steve Jobs and shares some awesome insights on his marketing strategies in Insanely Simple.
Finally, Scoopertino, Ken’s blog about all things sardonic in the unreal apple world is a hoot to say the least, and it always causes quite a stir not only for apple lovers, but the entire produce section.
I just adore Ken and I know you will too!
Share your comments, they’re always appreciated.

I’m unbelievably proud of the @ team. I’ve seen more than my share of startups rise and raise. SumAll is unique. Over the past year I’ve had the opportunity to watch Dane, Korey, Davin build both a great product and a great team. The SumAll product is one of the few data tools that helsp the customer derive an actual dollar value of social traffic. But SumAll’s ‘killer app’ is the Foundation. SumAll cares about people, in addition to data and money. The people of SumAll are willing to do the hard work of establishing an infrastructure that will sustain a long-term entrepreneurial culture. That’s true value.
CHARLOTTE — After a long journey from Tampa to Charlotte, co-hosts Dan Patterson and Marc Lizoain are once again safely ensconced among the comforts of the DNC Google lounge. The dynamic duo are joined in this episode by Ester Cross of Talk Radio News, and the conversation begins with an assessment of the Occupy protest that took place on Sunday and a discussion of the state of the DNC itself. The show concludes with the question of what Obama and the Democrats must do to take full advantage of what Dan and Marc think was a huge missed opportunity by the Republicans.
